Higher Education students at Nescot have given their college a resounding display of thanks through this year's leading student survey.
The National Satisfaction Survey is independent research carried out by the Office for Students in universities and colleges across the country, with students responding to 27 different questions. Nescot students rated their college highly in all areas, with the 'overall satisfaction' rating at 93%, well above the national average of 75%. The survey results show that Nescot is categorised as 'Significantly above benchmark' in every one of the 27 questions asked.
Nescot's Director of Higher Education, Nicki Adams, said: "This fantastic feedback from students is particularly impressive in a difficult year for the Higher Education sector. With many university students spending the entire year studying remotely, overall satisfaction in the sector has declined significantly. Nescot, however, with its primary focus on local provision and maintaining face-to-face teaching wherever possible, has bucked the trend in a big way. I am very proud of the teaching team and this is a reflection of their dedication throughout the year."
Nescot's Higher Education provision at its Surrey campus includes courses in 14 subject areas, ranging from Animal Management to Teacher Training. It also operates a weekend college for BA (Hons) Entrepreneurship Top-up degree students, with its Library open Saturdays and Sundays.
